I met my son at Spitalfields where I bought some silver and resin earrings at a booth and had fresh falafel from another. Lots to see and a fun place to walk around

Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
